he'll have a look at the hottest fashions and some predictions. hey, lara. plus, we have one of the biggest rock bands in the world this morning, the killers. you saw the people that popped up a little bit ago. they're here to kick off our weekend. >> all right. we begin, now, with the new iphone. people have been lining up all over the world for days, now, to get their hands on it. we're among the very first to have it. it's right here. i have the white one. george has the black one. but it's not all -- there's security here. it's not all smooth sailing for apple. there's already a few glitches. and abc's matt gutman is at an apple store in miami, florida, standing with everybody outside, with more on that story. good morning, matt. >> reporter: morning, elizabeth. the line here snakes around the block already. a lot of folks here have been waiting since yesterday. but the big buzz among the folks here is the new operating system for apple. a lot of glitches in there. of course, some people not so happy about the charger. you have to buy a new one for this iphone.
7:04 am
>> are you ready? >> reporter: the iphone 5 frenzy has begun. this morning in tokyo, hundreds surging. apple co-founder, steve wozniak, was down in australia, finds two. >> i want to be a part of this big adventure, this big revolution. and this advance in society. >> reporter: and in the u.s., from coast-to-coast, and in the heartland, folks investing serious time to get that new iphone. >> you can camp out in the forest if you want. i'll camp out at apple. >> reporter: overnight, the flagship store in new york, becoming a campground. previous releases had violent clashes in beijing earlier this year. becky worley was one that skipped the line and preordered the iphone 5 on the first day they were available, september 14th.
7:05 am

7:07 am
can you get the google map app any other way on this? and also, the youtube app that used to be loaded on the other iphones is not on this one. >> for right now, you can't get a google maps app. what you can do is use the browser to go to google maps and you can bookmark it so it's easy to get to. my understanding is there is an ios 6 google maps app in the works. >> are we going to see more as the companies compete more and more for the same share of the pipe, so to speak? >> the internet used to be about openness, about five years ago. what the iphone did was introduce a new way of thinking about how you win in the digital space. instead of just making a platform that anyone can join, you create the whole product. you create the phone. you create the software. you create the services. and that's proprietary. you buy one, you buy all of them. apple has been successful, that that's how people think about additional products. it will continue. >> jason tanz, thank you so much. despite it all, more people

7:09 am
outside. >> reporter: the president said that meant he'd spend his second term trying to convince the public to pressure lawmakers. but mitt romney saw the comments as an indictment of the president's leadership. and minutes later, he pounced. >> the president, today, threw in the white flag of surrender again. he said he can't change washington from the inside. he can only change it from outside. well, we're going to give him that chance in november. he's going outside. i can change washington. i will change washington. >> reporter: romney repeated that attack over and over again. using those words to portray the president as inept. >> the president of the united states says he can't change washington from the inside. he said he can't change washington from the inside. he says he can't change it from the inside. >> reporter: but at this point, both candidates are looking for any edge they can find. the president wasted no time painting romney as out of touch, for saying the 47% of americans who don't pay federal income taxes are irresponsible, government dependent victims.
7:10 am
>> when you express an attitude that half the country considers itself victims, that somehow they want to be dependent on government, my thinking is, maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> reporter: on radio late thursday, ann romney was asked about republican critics who say her husband is running a losing campaign. >> stop it. this is hard. you want to try it? get in the ring. >> reporter: and, george, both sides reported more than $110 million having been raised in their august financial reports. but the romney campaign facing some questions from republican donors about a $20 million loan it had to take out. and also, up to $200,000 in bonuses given to top campaign staffers, apparently for doing an astounding job. >> thanks. all of the latest from the campaign trail on sunday "this week." now, let's go to amy robach in for josh, for the other top stories. >> good morning, guys. we begin with a major milestone
7:11 am
in america's longest war. the troop surge in afghanistan is officially over this morning. the last of the 33,000 troops president obama sent to the war zone two years ago are now on their way home. abc's martha raddatz joins us, now. martha, what does this mean for the overall war effort? and for those troops who are left behind? >> well, as the surge troops are gone, it still leaves some 68,000 troops in afghanistan. all combat troops will be out at the end of 2014. although, some sort of force will remain. of the neay 2,000 american deaths in afghanistan, 57% occurred during this surge. the last surge troops are leaving at an extremely tumultuous time. the core of the mission is training afghan troops. but those troops are now turning on the americans and nato forces in record numbers. it has gotten so bad, we have suspended most patrols with the afghans. these will be very challenging years ahead, amy. >> all right, indeed. martha raddatz, thanks so much.

7:14 am
a pedestrian with a car and fleeing the scene. and new surveillance video shows the scene outside that manhattan nightclub where it all went down. will the tape help or hurt? abc's rob nelson is here to break it all down. >> good morning, george. another piece of the puzzle for sure here. lindsay lohan has had a reputation as one of hollywood's leading bad girls. that's for sure. in her latest case of hit-and-run, a surveillance tape released by the cops just yesterday, is leaving her guilt very much in doubt. overnight, a seemingly high-spirited lindsay lohan carrying a friend's child, emerging for the first time since her arrest. even tweeting this photo of a parked car with the caption, no more ramps. just hours earlier, this surveillance video of her alleged hit-and-run, outside a manhattan hotel was released. it was just before 12:30 a.m. wednesday. police have blurred some of the video. but you can see the car in on the left.
7:15 am
she is driving towards a ramp. flashing her headlights to warn bystanders. watch as the alleged victim, 34-year-old chef jose rodriguez crosses the car's path. with bystanders blocking the view, it's difficult to make out if lohan clips, grazes or misses him altogether. >> this tape helps lindsay lohan. it doesn't show her driving like a crazy person and mowing people down. >> reporter: here, rodriguez appears to be chasing after lohan's car. >> the fact he went after the car certainly won't help any civil case that he might bring. >> reporter: rodriguez told police lohan went into a nearby nightclub after the two exchanged words. she was arrested about 2:30 that morning. charged with leaving the scene and quickly released. authority says they don't believe alcohol played a role in the incident. detects tell abc news they cannot tell from the video if lohan made contact with rodriguez. the nypd is reportedly still
7:16 am
awaiting rodriguez's medical records to see if he was actually hit by a car. he told "the new york daily news" that, quote, i was in so much pain, i fell to the side. he said doctors told him he suffered torn tendons. now, lohan's publicist dismissed the claims. telling abc news, quote, we are very confident lindsay will be cleared of all charges. and scrutiny will then shift to the american making he's allegations. the video's a little hard to see. but it doesn't appear too damaging. >> thanks very much. >> rob, thank you. now, to the hunt for the photographer who took those topless photos of kate middleton. there's new details from another who says he knows who took the pictures. also this morning, surprising comments from john travolta, coming to the duchess' defense. and abc's jeffrey kofman joins us live from london with the latest on the investigation. good morning, jeffrey. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. the french police are on the case, searching for the photographer the london tabloids
